The two have become friends — they even had a photoshoot on the salt flats of Utah! We couldn’t be happier that Jamal is safe. And, as always, InspireMore loves a surprise friendship!

You never know where you’re going to meet your friend. In the case of Jamal, his friend and his kidney donor are the same person.

The comment section on this adorable video was full of emotions. Viewers were totally overcome by the friendship captured here.

“I just burst into tears,” commented one viewer of this kidney donor story.

“Organ donors = HEROES!!!” said another.

Being an organ donor is a brave choice — if you’ve got a spare, share it! And if you’ve got a powerful story like Jamal and Kim’s, share that, too!
